Book Review: 'Supreme Leadership' by Alinka Rutkowska
Most of us know Alinka Rutkowska through her excellent children’s books – a success story in itself in the way she managed to maintain interest and sales in her excellent children’s adventure stories. But this book shows us another aspect of her gifts: she is a coach who transforms struggling writers into profitable authorpreneurs, the founder and CEO of LibraryBub which connects librarians with award-winning and best-selling books from independent publishers, and founder and host of the "5-Figure Author Challenge," which gives authors winning strategies to get to 5 figures in 5 months. She’s been voted top 5 speaker and named most creative book marketer at the Bestseller Summit Online.
Now she has composed an anthology of important statements from learned colleagues who share secrets and advice in the categories of Passion, Vision, Customer Centeredness, and Relationships. Alinka’s manner of presenting each person’s contribution is well focused and drives home the message in a way that allows the reader to digest the salient aspects of the individual leader’s particular advice and reason for success.
Alinka opens her hared interviews with the following stated goal – ‘What allowed these leaders to succeed was their focus on one of these four leadership traits: passion, vision, customer centerdness or relationships. You will see yourself in these stories more than once. Within the pages of this book you’ll relive the mistakes these leaders have made and learn from them, so that you don’t need to experience them in real life. You’ll discover the secrets to running a thriving 25-year company. You’ll see laws of leadership that real people employed to achieve real results. By the time you finish reading this book you should be able to emulate featured leaders’ strategies to lead your own company to its 25th anniversary. But first, before you even get started, you need passion...’
Contagious enthusiasm well shared, Alinka Rutkowska once again demonstrates why she has become a leading voice in shaping entrepreneurs. Grady Harp, January 18
